pain in buttocks!

Postby bridesmum » Sat Nov 09, 2013 11:50 pm

For the last 3 months I have had horrible pain right at the top of my legs and buttocks. The pain is on both sides and into my bottom. It is made worse by sitting on an upright chair and the only relief is taking seriously strong painkillers and a hot water bottle. Does anyone have any advice and is it purely down to fibro? I have had fibro for the last 10 years and this is a pain I haven't experienced before. It isn't a stabbing or sharp pain, it's more of a sore deep aching pain.

With anything new, different/changing, or just giving general cause for concern, it's always best to have it checked out as, whilst it may be FM~related, it could also be down to something completely different and need additional or different treatment to sort it out.

I have a deep aching pain at times, mostly in my legs, but it also affects my arms at times. For me, it's an indicator that CFS rather than FM is flaring and that I need to bring Plan B online to try and make getting thru it a little easier......hopefully :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:

Thanks for your replies. I had sciatica when I was pregnant with my first child 27 years ago. It only affected my right side and the pain went right down my leg. This doesn't radiate down my legs although my feet feel a bit weird when my bottom pain is bad! I feel like I need to sit on a hot water bottle for the pain to ease a little.

If it feels like the bones in your bum and lower spine are aching/bruised, then, yep, suffering that myself for the last couple of weeks, first time in 2 years that particular pain has bothered me.

Went to see my gp this morning as the pain is getting worse not better. She gave me a thorough examination and said she was stumped! It's not sciatica but she thinks it might be referred pain from my hips. She sent me to our local cottage hospital for x-rays of my hips and lower back. The results should be back in 7 to 10 days so fingers crossed it's something that czn be treated. She offered me Tramadol as my dihydracodeine isn't effective but Tramadol makes me feel horrendous so I declined.

My pain in my lower body went from hips. To hips n back, to hips back n buttocks. Im getting sharp pains in my back whenever i try n move, n my buttocks feel like im being kicked in them, especially the right side. But worse still im suffering with a cough, though not too bad thankfully, but every tiny cough i make my back jolts n its like lightening going thru my buttocks. Its worse when in bed, and i cant move without me cryng out cus the pain either. Ive not yet been to docs, i will try n get in. I didnt think it was sciatica cus the pain is only between my knee and ankle on the outside of my leg n only when in bed. Any clues?

I find that sitting on one of my electric pads is lovely and soothing for my buttocks pain. Hope yours starts to ease soon. :teddy-bear:

Bridesmum...I am glad you went to the Dr. If it gets worse before you see her give the office a call to go in. It could be many things. My friend had the same pain as you describe and it turned out to be an internal issue. She could not sit on a chair it was terrible.

Hope things feel better soon

hi
I also suffer with a pain like this and after investigations including a operation to investigate further it turned out to be a loose coaxis (hope i have spelt it right ) unfortunately there isn't alot that can be done i was told that i could have this removed but there was no gaurantee that this would cure the pain and discomfort
